Westport passes budget

WESTPORT -The voters in the Westport Central School District voted in favor of the adopted 2011-12 spending plan May 17.

The $5,333,697 budget received 201 in favor compared to 154 against. The resulting budget calls for an estimated tax levy of $3,159,594.

"We are really happy," Westport superintendent Dr. John Gallagher said. "The board, staff, faculty and administration are all pleased that our spending plan has passed. It was a difficult year, and we cut some things that will be missed, but we were able to re-instate some items as well."

Also, incumbent board member Tom Kohler received 271 votes, running unopposed in the election.
